With a proven track record as an Accounts Payable Representative / Accounting Specialist for the past 13 years and a retail buyer’s assistant for the past 17 years, I desire a challenging position that offers growth opportunities within the company structure. I am self-motivated, highly detailed, and extremely loyal to my employer and will be a productive asset to any company with which I am employed.
